HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 2015-16 ACADEMIC YEAR

As standard, the 2015-16 school year was chock full of good times. This year, we handed over the social media reins to various student groups to document some of the biggest events on (and off) campus.

It started on the first Friday of the school year when the Union Programming Council took over the U’s social media for the first Crimson Nights party of the year. Things did not slow down as The Art Party threw a sophisticated soiree at the UMFA a few nights later. Redfest ramped things up as fall semester hit its stride, and then The MUSS hopped a bus for a trip to the Emerald City, where Utah Football defeated the University of Washington for the first time in Seattle.

Going into winter, we won a bowl game, defeated Duke in Madison Square Garden, and heard from some wonderful speakers, including Talib Kweli, Wendy Davis, Mitt Romney, Alice Walker and John Lewis. Takeover-wise, fine arts students showed us what life was like in the 17th century at their Baroque Party, and then there was the grand finale, the Grand Kerfuffle. Next up, Commencement!

Here are some of the highlights.
